Applications open for two-week Films as Poems workshop in London

I was excited to hear about this upcoming course for aspiring poetry-film makers from filmmaker and poet Zillah Bowes.

Films As Poems is a 2 week workshop in film creativity structured around making a film poem, taking place in London 4-15 April 2016.

Participants develop, shoot and edit a 2-5 minute film poem on the course during 2 weeks. There are workshops in camera and sound as well as feedback during the various stages of the film process.

Previous participants have screened their films after the course, including selection at the Zebra Poetry Film Festival.

Participants are mainly factual filmmakers looking to develop poetic expression, but the course is open to all.
